Transfer case indentify help

I have a 2007 Ford Ranger 4.0 manual 4x4 electric shift and need the transfer case replaced and found a good deal on a used one. The t-case I'm getting is from a 2000-2004 4.0 manual 4x4 electric shift and want to know if it will work with my Ranger.

The cases rarely go bad in 5 years, why do you think you need to swap it?

Well I was forced to buy this Ranger which is not bad at all as my previous truck was totaled and insurance gave me this Ranger. The previous owner was rough on the truck and I did not find out until after owning the Ranger through trials of repair. Some back ground to what I had to replace at such low miles was the front end I.E.: upper and lower ball joints, both tie rod ends, clutch, spindles, all shocks.

Well as I use the 4x4 and going around 50mph there is a clunking only in 4x4 and does not make the sound in 4x2. As I switch it to 4x2 from 4x4 it also clunks as it shifts. I can only assume that the transfer case is going bad, I really enjoy this truck and I have plans for upgrades but first must get it running correctly.

Thanks for the reply and information guys.

This year the transfer case spins all the time, just no power is being applied to the wheels when in 2wd. Being speed dependent I think your looking at u joint in the front shaft or the CV joint. Clunking when shifting is normal, you should change the fluid in the case (60k intervals and use the same fluid that's in the trans).

I had a lower ball joint die at 12k when I ran over a rock the size of the wheel. So I know they are not durable. I also had to rebuild the front end around 100k (ball joints, tie, rod ends, wheel bearings, and shocks). These are just wear items that need to be replaced with every truck. I just did another wheel bearing and the tie rod end was shot again, now at 164k.
